Lena Dunham Cuts Back on Social Media Due to Cyberbullying

0

Lena Dunham has cut back on her Twitter usage after she received multiple taunts from online bullies.

The Girls star was once a celebrity staple on the microblogging site, but she confessed she has had to remove the Twitter app from her cell phone because the rude comments from Internet critics was becoming too much.

During an interview with Ryan Seacrest during the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday, the host asked Dunham whether she would be checking social media for fan reactions to the Girls season four premiere, which aired in America the same night.

Dunham replied, “I deleted Twitter because I’m trying to create a safer space for myself emotionally. People like, threatened my life and told me what a cow I am so I decided I was gonna cut it out… I check it occasionally, but it’s not the same co-dependence Twitter that I once shared…

“It’s the dark side of the Internet. There’s a lot of people I love on Twitter, but unfortunately, you can’t read those without deranged neocons telling you you should be buried under a pile of rocks.”
